Oz Harvest

Oz Harvest is a national organisation whose mission is to rescue food from businesses which would otherwise be discarded. The organisation's volunteers then re-distribute it to those in need.

Students are required to establish a food rescue 'hub'; write the Oz Harvest newsletter and/or organise special events.

Marketing and communication assistance

Oz Harvest requires an editorial team to research, write and distribute its monthly online newsletter and assist with other communication tasks as required.

This project would suit students from Journalism, Public Relations, Professional Writing, Communication,  and/or Nutrition.

Event Coordination and administration

Special events - thank you celebrations and dinners; ceremonies; promotions - take place frequently for OzHarvest supporters and volunteers. Students are required to manage events.

This project would suit students from Health Science, Public Relations, Marketing and/or Tourism and Event Management.

Nutrition Education and Sustenance Training (NEST)

Bachelor of Nutrition and Food Science OR Health Science students are sought to help deliver cooking and nutrition education classes.   The organisations include those which assist clients who have financial hardship including the Salvation Army; Unity Housing and Mission Australia.  Your role will be to  use your discipline knowledge to prepare sessions, resources and materials.   The aim of the NEST program is to improve community health outcomes through education.
